We want to introduce and discuss the still-unveiled possibilities of Cultural Computing which would express, in the interactive way, such substantial cultural issues such as sensitivity, memory, spirituality, storytelling, racial characteristics, etc., that have not been addressed in computer science and engineering so far. There are various possibilities in this area. From an artistic point of view, Cultural Computing can go beyond the present day media art by treating cultural issues described above. From the viewpoint of technology, it would open a new area in computer technologies, which so far has only been addressing the digitization of cultural heritages/contents for the purpose of preserving them. The digitization of cultural issues would make it possible for people to understand different cultures,bridging the gaps between time and space, consequently creating new cultures.

We particularly examine Japanese culture, although it is only a small subject of computing.
